January 15th, one of my favorite web design forum, has been taken over by some e-commerce site. Fortunately, the subdomain, I have no idea what happened but I hope they get it back. Stylegala has been fighting downtime and spammers recently and it goes to show you maintaining an online community is one hell of a job.

All you webdevs out there remember to protect your site. Know when your domain expires. If you own a high profile domain, unscrupulous people will pounce on an expired domain immediately.

Keeping the web beautiful means more than pretty designs. It means beating back spammers and other low-ball types.

Update: The good news is that it looks like they got their domain name back.
